    Far and few if any. Borland stopped supporting this for sometime and I have not seen any mention on the Developer Network about a revival strategy. With the OpenSource tools available for Linux already, it probably really wouldn't make sense going through research and development for Kylix.

    I am going to be exploring Linux soon and wanted to have some development tools for it. Just like how I have Windows covered with Delphi. I was also assuming that Kylix was very easy in linux as Delphi is in Windows.

    Its early though so I will be concentrating on learning Fedora right now.

    I agree. Years ago I started getting into Kylix but decided to spend my efforts getting deeper into Java which seemed to make more sense in terms of vision and availability of libraries out there.
    I recommend Ubuntu

    I too have returned to linux, but on two fronts(i still use d7 windows i use VirualBox which is Free for windows and linux users it works best if your host is linux.)

    in any case Free pascal is the tool i am looking at. It seems to has GTK(gui) support and off course console,database and network. Kylix died an untimely death.

    The good news is that CodeGear has stated that they will be actively looking at cross-platform development after the release of Commodore. However I don't think they will be developing an IDE for Linux anymore, rather have code compiled to run under the Linux environment.
